JOEMMA BEACH STATE PARK
Joemma Beach State Park is a 122-acre marine camping park with 3,000 feet of saltwater frontage on southeast Key Peninsula. Aside from the natural beauty of park and surroundings, the area is an excellent place for fishing, boating and crabbing. This forested park set on Puget Sound provides a boat launch and water trail campsites. Fishing and crabbing attract visitors.
This property was granted to Washington at statehood in 1889 for the support of common schools. The original recreation site was developed beginning in 1961 and was named Robert F. Kennedy Recreation Area on opening day in 1968. The property was transferred to State Parks in 1995 and was renamed "Joemma Beach State Park" after Joe and Emma Smith who lived on the premises from 1917 to 1932.
